Big hoohaa about people wearing pyjamas outside

You'd think that people would have more to concern themselves about than what other people wear. Anyway, pyjamas are a lot more "decent" than a lot of things some people wander about in.

At the first sight of sun in the UK, many people seem to think it's OK to wander down their local High Streets attired in beachwear.

And what of the ethnic groups where a pyjama-type outfit is the norm - like shalwar kamiz.

Either this is a kind of racist issue or it's just plain daft. What do you think?

As in the photo used to illustrate the article, from the looks of it. It does seem rather silly to make such a fuss - especially the head teachers complaining about parents on the school run.
